Last night was my first time seeing Opeth, a desire so old it was amazing to fullfill. Sadly it was a festival and the show was not primarily Opeth so I had to wait for 6 shit black metal bands to witness the miracle of Opeth. It was worth it. They played 6 songs covering the last few albums back to Blackwater Park. I have waited so long for this I was yelling out every song and just staring in awe at the guys. I was hoping to catch something but Mike didn't throw anything and Axe kept his drum sticks. Fredrik threw his picks but far from where I was sadly. The highlight of the concert for me was when I looked at Mendez and screamed his name out and he looked at me and smiled and the same happened with Fredrik, Per seemed irresponsive to almost anything. I was in the second row. At then end when they all get together and bow down to the crowd I had a banner with me that said HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I was holding it out for Axe to see but no one noticed it, I was hoping he would. Someone threw a cap on stage and Mike wore it for a bit then tossed it back into the crowd. He also cracked a couple of jokes which was good Setlist: Heir Apparent Ghost of Perdition Closure The Lotus Eater The Leper Affinity Deliverance Opeth dominated, masterful performance. The bands that were playing were ordered as follows: Scarab (Egypt) Hatred (Germany) Nervecell (Dubai) August Burns Red (PA, U.S.A.) Chimaira (OH, U.S.A.) OPETH FROM STOCKHOLM SWEDEN Arch Enemy Motorhead The last three bands were worth hanging through 7 hours of shit black metal which I grew to even hate more, the all sound the fucking same. Angel Gossow was on fire, Arch Enemy played a much longer set than Opeth's. Motorhead were amazing, Lemmy was pretty funny and energetic, I'm glad they played Killed By Death! I caught Lemmy's pick and Mikkey Dee's drum Stick, my brother caught Roger's guitar picks and my cousin did too. Amazing night, great time with my brother, saw Opeth live, I'm a very happy individual and I want to see them again, hopefully in an Opeth concert.
